LIVE Communication between 9M2RPN and ARISS

ARISS contact via 9M2RPN with students at National Planetarium, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, was scheduled at Fri 2015-10-09 04:00PM. The scheduled astronaut is Kjell Lindgren KO5MOS.



School Information
Our first ARISS contact was made in 2007 when, Malaysia's first Astronaut Shiekh Muzapher went on board the ISS. We made 5 direct contacts when, some 80 school children talked to him and asked questions.  Since then it has become a highly sought after yearly event which is tied up with the Prime Minister's Space Challenge Trophy.  This year we will be making our 8th yearly contact. Since the schools do not have ground stations, they make use of Satellite Ground Station at the National Planetarium established in 1995 under the call sign of 9M2RPN. The schools are the nurseries to produce future astronauts and space scientists.  The forthcoming contact in October 2015 provides the hands on experience and the seeding operation for tomorrow's space scientists.








































9M2IR (MARTS PRESIDENT) and 9M2PRO (MARTS Secretary) attended and gave their supports.
